Cornelius Hennessy Building

The Cornelius Hennessy Building is located at 1023 Chestnut Street in Murphysboro, Illinois. Built in 1896 and surviving the 1925 Tornado, it was built in a Richardson Romanesque style.  It’s the only remaining downtown commercial building built from locally quarried Jackson County sandstone before 1900. 

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2000, and later listed as a Murphysboro Designated Local Landmark.
